Sacred Literature App for King James Bible with Immersive Audio Launched

The purpose of the free new app is to provide interested Christians, Catholics, theologians and other curious readers with the opportunity to connect with the King James Bible on a new level. In an attempt to bring the Bible’s full beauty and power to life, Sacred Tradition’s Ocean 2.0 Reader pairs text with real human audio narration aligned word-for-word.

Consider the following example at

The launch of the app coincides with recent research on the implications of people’s limited attention spans for their ability to read. According to research published widely in Time Magazine, The New York Times, the National Post and more, the average attention span has reduced from 12 seconds in the year 2000 to just 8 seconds now, which is a bit less than that of an average goldfish.

With a difficulty in understanding the complex prose of the Bible and the length of the weighty tome being the main reasons that both Christians and non-Christians alike cite for their inability to read the King James Bible in full, Sacred Traditions understands that–as humanity struggles more and more to keep focused–more can be done to bring this worthy text back to life.

As such, the Ocean Reader 2.0’s immersive audio Bible captures the original work’s moving sentiment through an engaging audio interpretation that can be listened to as one reads the physical text. This enhanced read-along experience dramatically improves comprehension and enjoyment.

The app contains the full King James Bible, including some of its most noteworthy Psalms and passages, like The First Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians.

As a true interfaith library, Ocean is also home to the other worthy texts that represent the world’s leading religions, including Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Jainism, Zoroastrianism, Confucian, Tao and Bahai.

Ocean Reader 2.0 is a new app from Sacred Traditions, an organization devoted to enhancing the world’s understanding of religion, faith, morality and culture, and boosting its appreciation of the beauty of biblical texts.

It is available directly on the web and mobile — both iOS and Android.

A spokesperson for the app said, “Ocean is a free custom ebook reader designed for exploration and study of the sacred literature of the world’s religious traditions. It provides a simple cross-platform book reader with an immersive audio-integrated reading experience and useful study tools.??”
